Preview

Erika Larsen’s photographs explore the symbiotic relationship between Sámi reindeer herders and the environment, their existence in today’s world and their ancestral roots.

This work was created between 2007-2011 in Kautokeino, Norway and Gallivare, Sweden where Larsen worked as a beaga, or housekeeper, for a family of Sámi reindeer herders.
